Tomorrowland. Simply put; "the best music festival in the world". Most can not argue the fact that Tomorrowland must be the most well organized festival in the world. This is what allows the festival to be as special as it is. Everything and everyone involved has meaning a purpose with the universal ultimate goal of creating the greatest multisensory experience on earth.
When talking to Project Director for Tomorrowland who is also the liaison for Tomorrowworld taking place in Atlanta- his passion for what they do was infectious. He truly believes this festival is the greatest in the world and he strives to achieve that. He spoke about how electronic music is the perfect medium in how the sets take the audience in a unified path joined together in the same goal and it is up to the artist creativity to map out that journey. Tomorrowland is meant to be a whole new world that festival goers can be apart of for 3 days.
In the last seven years Tomorrowland has seen it's evolution from a one day 10,000 capacity festival into a 3 day spectacle, with 180,000 festival goers, including 35,000 campers, flocking to Belgium for one of the most sensational weekends in music. Tomorrowland draws followers from a staggering 214 countries and is the most international gathering of people in the world.
Tomorrowland is special because of the people who organize it and have the imagination to put something so special together. Tomorrowland hires thousands of employeess to ensure a great festival and I want to thank all those people. Tomorrowland will leave Boom and leave the site exactly how they were given. They will seriously pick up every cig butt. That is why Tomorrowland is able to be what it is.
Every stage has a specific story and has an individual purpose in the overall world of Tomorrowland. Festival goers can wander from stage to stage and experience so many different styles and themes that all work so well together.
